Twitter reacts to Clippers' record comeback against Warriors

Never go to sleep during the National Basketball Association playoffs. Embiid was a game-time decision due to a sore left knee.

Kevon Looney filled in and scored a career-high 19 points making all six of his shots.

Golden State announced that Cousins had been ruled out of the remainder of the game, his second ever in the playoffs, and would undergo an MRI in the next 24 hours.

No team wants to be down 0-2 in a series. To that end, it was important for Philadelphia to win game two.

The small forward has helped them win back-to-back NBA titles in 2017 and 2018, and also picked up the NBA Finals MVP title on both occasions.

It didn't take Curry long to get going in this game. Bench mate Montrezl Harrell had 17 of his 25 points after intermission. Jimmy Butler was unable to follow up his scoring output provided in game one, he finished with only 7 points, however, Tobias Harris and J.J. Redick would redeem themselves from their game one performances by combining for 36 points in game two. The last team to do it was the 2000-02 Los Angeles Lakers.

In the Eastern Conference, the 3 seed Philadelphia 76ers looked to bounce back after getting blown out by the 6 seed Brooklyn Nets in Game 1.

The Golden State Warriors' front office signed Bogut as a reliable insurance policy in the event that the worst-case scenario of a DeMarcus Cousins injury occurred. "It's about the Clippers versus the Warriors".

It was a feud between Warriors star Kevin Durant and Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley that stole the show, however.

Warriors superstar Steph Curry led the way for his team, ending with 29 points. We didn't deserve to win that game. I don't know the extent of the injury at this point.

The 76ers also set a franchise record for points in a postseason game - eclipsing the previous mark of 141 against San Francisco in 1967. One of his three-pointers was from a distance of about 30 feet. Alas, Los Angeles has other ideas in mind.

That resiliency will be tested once again on Wednesday as the series heads back to the Staples Center.

Coach Steve Kerr said after the Warriors' 135-131 Game 2 loss on Monday night that Cousins would be out for a significant period.

\"I have met DeMarcus Cousins; I have sat and talked with him".

But it's not as if a comeback from such a steep deficit is new for these Clippers. Borrowing the University of Michigan Fight Song, "Hail to the Victors".

Williams tied the game on a jumper with 1:10 to play then Curry immediately answered.

The game marked the first Warriors playoff loss in the shot-clock-era (1954-55) in which the team led by 15-or-more points at halftime.

And fight they did.

Landry Shamet scores the go-ahead bucket to seal the win for the Los Angeles Clippers. "We talked about that". "Well, we stopped playing".
